I came back to Binghamton 4 years after graduating. One of the main reasons was to try Brozzetti’s pizza. I never heard of it before – but it is apparently legendary!
It sits at the back of the hospital in Johnson City, and like the people who choose to drink the water in Binghamton, it’s kept alive by the hospital workers. There are no tables, so you will invariably be eating with the locals in the parking lot beside doctors and nurses taking smoke breaks out of sight of bosses (and lung cancer patients).
I wouldn’t even say it’s a step up from Elios. It is one of those crappy regional pizzas so unique that every month or so you get this irrational taste in your mouth’s mind and can’t get it out until you have another slice. The crust is chewy, and by the end of the rectangle pie the cold slices are just worthless. The sauce is a grade below Hunt’s catsup and the cheese is a blend of 2 of the cheapest cheeses at the Giant.
For some reason I want some now. Damn these masochistic taste buds!
